Dial 1-844-TVG-PDJF this Sunday, April 8 with your tax deductible donation to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) and Mike Smith or another Hall of Fame rider just might be taking your call.

The first PDJF telethon, hosted by the TVG Network in association with Betfair, will run from 1 pm – 7 pm (ET) that day.

Hall of Fame jockeys Javier Castellano, Pat Day, Ramon Dominguez, Sandy Hawley, Chris McCarron and Alex Solis will be among those waiting for your calls and donations.

They will be joined by other active or retired Thoroughbred jockeys and top Quarter Horse riders Cody Jensen and Eddie Garcia as well as PDJF beneficiaries in manning the phone banks at the TVG studios in California and Keeneland Race Course in Kentucky.

Your tax deductible donations will support the PDJF, a 501 (c)(3) public charity that provides financial assistance to 60 former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries. Since its creation in 2006, nearly $9 million has been distributed to support disabled riders, most of whom have sustained paralysis or brain injuries.

With no guaranteed source of funding from within the horse racing industry, the PDJF is 100% reliant on donations. Over 90 cents of every dollar donated to the PDJF goes directly to its beneficiaries.

Call 1-844-TVG-PDJF (1-844-884-7353) this Sunday to make a difference in the lives of our disabled riders. If you are unable to call, you may donate to PDJF online at
